Workflow work

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have an ASP.NET C# Web application in place which adds records to a database, these records are polled by a WinForms app which then sends out email notifications to users based on their role.

What I need is someone to detail how WWF could be integrated into this solution so that it is properly workflow driven.

If you have the relevant skills then I'd be very glad to hear from you?

Workflow doesn't work anymore after renaming list

Hi All, I have created a list with the name "helpdesk test". After testing this list i renamed the list to "helpdesk". I did the rename by the list settings.  To this list i attached some workflows, with Sharepoint designer,  that have to start when a new item is created. All worked fine but after the rename the workflows don't work anymore. When i start the workflows manually from the list all works fine. Is there a way to rename a list and let the workflows work as before? Thanks in advance. Laurens.

SharePoint Workflow dosn't work automatically

"Does not contain" condition on a choice field in a SPD Workflow does not apply/work


I am trying to check a multiple choice field on containing a specific value but it doesn't really work. I am not sure if that is because I have a

problem with the logic or if that is a SPD problem.

I created a Content Type "Test CT" (based on the "item" content type) and added two Site Columns of the type "choice", named "Test Column 1" and

"Test Column 2" to that content type. Both choice fields are configured to contain multiple values and can contain the identical values "Product

ABC" and "Product XYZ". Additionally I added Site Column of the type "Single Line of text", named "Result" to the content type. Then I added the

content type to the custom list "Test List".

Now I built the Reusable Sharepoint Designer Workflow "Test WF" that is based on this content type and that works like this:


Set "Result" to String "Start"

If "Test Column 1" contains String "Product ABC"
Set "Result" to String "Test Column 1 contains ABC"

Else If "Test Column 1" does not contain String "Product ABC"
Set "Result" to String "Test Column 1 does not contain ABC"


Then I

Anyone know of any plugins/addins to allow Ctrl + F to work in the Workflow Designer?



It was suggested I post in this forum regarding my quandary re: navigating large workflows from the GUI:


It appears that Ctrl+F is not supported in the Workflow Designer out of the box; just wanted to know if anyone is aware of any VS plugins, addons, or tricks that could quickly let us jump to the desired section of the workflow without constantly working in Expand All mode or memorizing Sequence names (the latter of which seems to be the inevitable as we make our customizations more complex).

Thanks much!

Looking for guidance: wanting to work with AJAX architecture



I'm starting a small website that will be backed by a database, and will allow a small number of users to authenticate and select an entry in the database, and then view (and optionally update) a corresponding entry (think master-detail).

I have some flexibility in how I'll do this, but I'd really like to incorperate some newer AJAX style coding, eliminating some page postbacks. I think this is a great opportunity to learn the concepts well.

I'll probably go with an ASP.NET 4.0 site. From what I've seen there are MANY ways to go about this:

-WCF Data Services to expose the data, and consume in ASP.NET

-Page methods to expose the data, separate method to update the data

-I'd rather avoid the UpdatePanel because I'm really looking for a full hands-on approach, with learning client side scripting being an objective as well.

Beyond that, it seems that one can use jQuery to build clientside templates, but also one can use the ASP.NET AJAX template engine (in ASP.NET 4.0 I believe).

A concern I have: users should only be able to work with the data exposed via these endpoints if they are logged into the website. Hopefully I can somehow reuse the ASP.NET forms authentication cookie for this purpose. 

Well, I hope I've posted enough to a

animate effect work but the render items are messed up.


Hi all,

     I have a very unique problem, humm i think. I am using a jquery effect that animate bounce effect, i have a line in my javascript pageLoad function $("#UserBrowserInfoDIV").show('bounce'); - the effects run smoothly but what it does is mess up the bolded text in the div. I have try the items inside the div without bolding and it works fine and no render problem but when bolded the text that are bolded is quite messed up, and barely readable.

Please let me know is there anything else i can do i really would like use this effect.

P.S all the effect have the same render problem, and i am using ie8 under compatibility mode.





Why getTreeNode does not work?



I try to run a  treeview example from msdn:


I also want to use code from


Here is my code:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<%@ Register TagPrefix="mytree"

Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.
